Perfect Product Display!

I made this big, chunky, beaded necklace and I needed something to hang it on to take a photo of it.. Hhmmmm.... Let me see? Well she was right there looking at me with those big sweet brown eyes, like she wanted to try it on ;o)  How could I say no?

How 'bout a purse to match, Bella?  She says "No, way lady!!"
I've had enough modeling for one day...

Fairs, Shows, and Festivals Oh My!

Here I am setting up being silly, not sure what I have gotten my self into!!
Silliness gets me through everything....

Hi Karen, one of my angels ;o) !!!  Thanks for all your help!

So.......  Whewwwww I got through it..... I did three shows in two weeks.  I don't know how people do it like that all the time.  I am exhausted.  It was a lot of fun, meeting some really cool vendors and nice people.  I learned A LOT!!  I had an amazing month and I want to thank you all!!!  I am looking forward to doing many more in the future.

Ambition and Determination.......

My Cayson!!

My son who started the sixth grade this year and is eleven has blown me away this week with his determination and ability.  He swims on a year round swim team which takes a lot out of him to begin with.  He is required to swim three days a week one and a half hour practices and attend some grueling swim meets.  Lately it's been at least two a month.  Now he has decided he wants to be on the wrestling team for his school which will require every day practices for an hour and a half.  So far this week we have been doing this schedule and poor guy, he is sticking to it and is sure he can do it!  I dropped him off to swim practice last night and he ate dinner in the car.  I keep pondering on, "am I a bad Mom for letting him do too much, or am I a good Mom for letting him try it"?  It is so tough, I guess I will see how things go after cuts!  Cuts are Friday, he has the worst odds being a sixth grader.  It is in God's hands and whatever is best will happen.  I do believe that!  This will be such a good leaning experience for the both of us, I guess.  I do know I have learned one thing, Cayson puts out more effort than I could, ever.  I am so proud of you, son!!!
